[Continued from: Have Two Thirds of Deobandism Been Destroyed by THE Dumb Person?]
In his baseless allegation No.8, the Salafi coprocreep states:
“Deos claim to be Maturidis. This means that they should affirm the very first piece of text in Nasafiyyah, which is that “the realities of everything is true and real” (not an illusion). Deos also claim to be Sufis. This means they should believe in their Tafseer of Wahdatul Wujood, which is that only Allah really exists and everything else is just an illusion. This is the same Obstinate Sophism refuted by Nasafiyyah.”
The coprocreep, due to his stark ignorance, has portrayed two entirely different issues as being contradictory, hence he alleges that the Ulama of Deoband ascribe to a contradiction. Outlining his stupid understanding on this issue, the jaahil coprocreep says:
“So which one is it gonna be – a huge fundamental of Maturidism as set out in the very first line of Nasafiyyah – i.e. realism for everything, or arguably the most fundamental precept of Sufism – Wahdatul Wujood or realism for only Allah and anti-realism for everything else? Renouncing either is tantamount to renouncing the whole discipline to which it is connected (either Maturidism or Sufism), and not renouncing either is a severe self-contradiction….”
The Ulama of Deoband affirm both issues, viz. all created things have real existence, and the concept of Wahdatul Wujood is correct. But there is a vast difference in Divine Realism and the realism of created beings. While the Existence of Allah Azza Wa Jal is independent of all things, the existence of all things is dependent on Allah Azza Wa Jal. Thus, Wahdatul Wujood does not portray created objects to be non-existent and devoid of reality. But, in relation to Allah’s Existence, the existence of creation has no ‘reality’.
The ‘self-contradiction’ is the hallucination of the coprocreep, which is the consequence of his mental vermiculation effected by copro-vermin. In presenting this hallucinated ‘self-contradiction’, the coprocreep has conspicuously advertised his jahaalat. He has extracted from two entirely different subjects (Aqaaid and Akhlaaq or as he terms it: ‘Maturidism and Sufism’), two different concepts, and presented them stupidly as if both deal with the same issue. Thus, he imagines the ‘self-contradiction’ since he did not understand either of the concepts.
His confusion is like the ignorance of a person who sees a self-contradiction in the different usage of the word bachelor. Zaid, a married man, has acquired a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) degree. When Zaid informed the coprocreep that he is a Bachelor of Arts, the coprocreep retorted: ‘But you are married. You have a wife and children.’ Regardless of Zaid’s attempts to explain, the coprocreep demonstrating his jahaalat, obstinately maintains that Zaid is guilty of a ‘self-contradiction’ because he contends that he is a ‘bachelor’. This is precisely the nescience which the calcified brains of the coprocreep displays in his ‘self-contradiction’ stupidity against the Ulama of Deoband.
The ‘reality’ of created things which is stated in Nasafiyyah has absolutely no relationship with the concept of Wahdatul Wujood which the Auliya (Sufiya) propound. While the former, i.e. the reality of things, refers to the physical existence of tangible or material or physical creations of Allah Azza Wa Jal, denied by the Sophists, Wahdatul Wujood is a state or a spiritual condition. It is among the Ahwaal (spiritual conditions). It is an abstract concept.
Explaining the reality of things, it is mentioned in Nasafiyyah: “The haqaaiq (realities) of things (created things) are confirmed.” This is in rejection of the Indiyyah sect of the Sufastaaiyyah (Sophists) who believe that all things as we see and feel them are hallucinations similar to the hallucinations of the coprocreep who has imagined falsities for the Ulama of Deoband.
Wahdatul Wujood does not have the remotest relationship with the reality of created material objects. This concept does not deny the real existence of created things. It merely means that in relation to Allah’s Existence, all things pale into ‘non-existence’ since the only True and Independent Existent is Allah Azza Wa Jal. The existence of entire creation depends on the Command of Allah Azza Wa Jal. If the size of an ant is compared with the size of an elephant, it will be correct to say that the ant has no existence and no size in relation to the massive body of the elephant. The ant’s physical strength in relation to the elephant’s physical power is ‘non-existent’ – it has no ‘reality’. Such statements to convey superiority and emphasis do not deny the real existence of the inferior and insignificant being.
Wahdatul Wujood is a technical term which has a specific meaning in the terminology of the Auliya. But because the coprocreep is stupid and lacks understanding of the specific terminologies of the Sufiya, he has interpreted this Sufi term to be in contradiction of a literal term spoken of in entirely another subject.
Since Wahdatul Wujood does not deny the material existence of created objects – in fact it has no relationship with it – the coprocreep’s objection serves only to confirm his gross ignorance of both subjects. Neither has he understood what is mentioned in Nasafiyyah nor does he understand the meaning of Wahdatul Wujood.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) himself has expounded the Wahdatul Wujood concept of the Sufiya. In a Hadith-e-Qudsi, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“The Son of Aadam distresses Me by abusing dahr (time, age, era) whilst I (i.e. Allah) am Time. All affairs are in My Command. I alternate night and day.”
(Bukhaari, Muslim, Maalik and Abu Daawood)
It is a simple reality that Age (Time) is not Allah Azza Wa Jal. It is Allah’s creation. However, despite the absence of unity of Allah and Time, the Hadith-e-Qudsi figuratively states the unification or unity of Allah and Time. This is Wahdatul Wujood which the very same Hadith explains by saying:
“It is I (Allah) Who alternates night and day.”
Age/Time is subservient to Allah Ta’ala. It has no existence without the Command of Allah Azza Wa Jal. Since it is totally dependent on Allah Ta’ala for its existence, Allah Ta’ala said: ‘I am Time’. This is Wahdatul Wujood which the coprocreep has been unable to understand. It is not a denial of the existence of created things.
